Spinach and Lentil Meatloaf & Sweet and Sour Cole Slaw

I made the spinach lentil meatloaf a couple of weeks ago and made a double batch so we enjoyed the second one this evening. It makes dinner so much easier to double up on recipes and freeze half. Most the time, it's just as easy to make 2 rather than just to make 1. So with the extra coleslaw mix on hand this week, the sweet and sour coleslaw seemed the perfect fit with the meatloaf. It's sweet, delicious and super low calorie. I ate a LOT of food tonight so I'm very full and satisfied and still managed to stay with in calorie budget. Yea!

Sweet and Sour Cole Slaw

1 cup onion, chopped
3 cups chopped or shredded cabbage
2 cups apples, chopped with peelings (about 2 medium apples)
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp. splenda
1 tsp. molasses
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

Saute onion in cooking spray for about a minute, add cabbage and apples and saute for about 3 minutes. Mix remaining ingredients in small bowl and add to cabbage mixture. Cover and cook over low heat for about 25 minutes.

Total calories = 350 calories
3 servings = 117 calories

1/3 of meatloaf = 350 calories, 2 tbsp. ketchup = 30 calories
1 serving meatloaf w/ ketchup + 1 serving sweet and sour coleslaw = 497 calorie dinner
